City Plan

Townsville City Plan

We are proud to present the Townsville City Plan, which was formally adopted by council on 13 October 2014 and commenced on 27 October 2014, and is the first planning scheme for the amalgamated city. The Townsville City Plan looks at our city with a fresh perspective; it sets the vision and consistent plan for how Townsville should grow over the next 25 years. The Townsville City Plan can be viewed via ePlanning and Townsville City Plan Interactive Mapping Service.

Standard drawings will be available to view in the Townsville City Plan in the near future. In the meantime, please contact council if you require standard drawings.
